Regression

Public API and Backward Incompatible Changes

This section lists public API changes that were introduced in Aspose.Words 17.3.0. It includes not only new and obsoleted public methods, but also a description of any changes in the behavior behind the scenes in Aspose.Words which may affect existing code. Any behavior introduced that could be seen as a regression and modifies existing behavior is especially important and is documented here.

WORDSNET-4316: Font Substitution Mechanism Improved

Previously Aspose.Words performed font substitution only in cases when FontInfo in the document for the missing font doesn't contains the PANOSE. Now Aspose.Words evaluates all related fields in FontInfo (Panose, Sig etc) and finds the closest match among the available font sources. In case of font substitution the warning is issued with text:

"Font '<font_name>' has not been found. Using '<substitution_name>' font instead. Reason: closest match according to font info from the document."

Please note that now font substitution mechanism will override the FontSettings.DefaultFontName in cases when FontInfo for the missing font is available in the document. FontSettings.DefaultFontName will be used only in cases when there are no FontInfo for the missing font.

Also please note that font substitution algorithm in MS Word is not documented. And the result of Aspose.Words font substitution may not match MS Word choice.

New Public OfficeMath.MathObjectType Property Added

To improve customer experience with Office Math objects in Aspose.Words model we've exposed the following simple read-only addition to the public API:

  • New readon-only property *OfficeMath.MathObjectType*
  • New public enum MathObjectType

Support of Variables, Dynamic Text Background Setting, and a New Image Size Fit mode Added to LINQ Reporting Engine

These issues have been resolved: WORDSNET-14489, WORDSNET-14600 and WORDSNET-14627

The following sections of the engine's documentation were added/updated to describe the changes:

WORDSNET-12412 - Added a MailMergeCleanupOptions Option to Remove Empty Row

As per customer's request, we have added a MailMergeCleanupOptions option allowing to remove empty rows during mail merge:

Sample usage:

WORDSNET-14602 - New Public Properties were Added to the OfficeMath Object.

New public properties Justification and DisplayType were added into the OfficeMath class.

Use Case:

 

Mimic MS Word VBA behavior:

-  DisplayType cannot be changed for nested Office Math. The exception will be thrown.

-   Inline justification cannot be set to the Office Math displayed on its own line (DisplayType=OfficeMathDisplayType.Display). The exception will be thrown. OfficeMath.DisplayType property has to be used to change OfficeMathDisplayType first.

-   Justification cannot be set to the Office Math displayed inline with text. The exception will be thrown. OfficeMath.DisplayType property has to be used to change OfficeMathDisplayType first.

WORDSNET-14745 - Provided Ability to Specify Locale at Field Level

As per customer's request, we have added a property that allows to get/set field's locale:

Sample usage:

Labels
  • No labels
